By The Active Age | January 6, 2024

Maize and Andover were among Kansas cities that appeared to grow in population the fastest last year, according to U-Haul.
The company tracks one-way rentals of trucks, trailers and U-box moving containers across the United State each year to come up with its “growth index.”
Overall, Kansas saw more slightly more departures (50.1 percent) than arrivals (49.9 percent) by do-it-yourself movers, according to U-Haul. The state’s top growth cities were college towns Manhattan and Lawrence, followed by Maize, Garden City, Topeka, Andover, McPherson and Emporia. Shawnee and Gardner were break-even markets. No information was available on Wichita.
For the third year in a row, Texas was No. 1 and Florida No. 2 among one-way arrivals for states, while California saw the most departures. Michigan, New Jersey, Illinois and Massachusetts rounded out the bottom five. For more about the rankings, visit myuhaulstory.com.
